The world’s nicest Taco Bell is located on a beach in California and has a walk-up window


Taco Bell isn’t a particularly glamorous place to eat.

But a store location in Pacifica, California, takes the fast-food chain to a new level. It sits on a beach, takes orders at a walk-up window, and has an oceanfront patio where guests can enjoy their Doritos Locos Tacos. In 2013, Thrillist dubbed it “the greatest Taco Bell in the world.”

We turned to Instagram to see why the Pacifica location beats all other Taco Bells.

This California location looks more like a beach bungalow than a fast-food restaurant. It sits on Pacifica State Beach, which is about a half-hour drive from downtown San Francisco.

Its most notable feature is a walk-up window (instead of a drive-through).

It’s a convenient option if your feet are sandy from the beach.

There’s also a standard counter inside. (Watch the video to get the full tour.)

You could eat inside, where the digs are no different than your typical Taco Bell.

But the patio out back is where it’s at.

The ocean views are spectacular.

We can’t make any promises, but your Crunchy Taco might actually taste better in Pacifica.
